NO.5-1-13


This page provides information on Kimberlina, a concentrating solar power (CSP) project, with data organized by background, participants, and power plant configuration. Kimberlina is the first Compact Linear Fresnel Reflector (CLFR) project in North America. Located in Bakersfield, CA, Ausra began construction of the power plant in March 2008, with the plant entering operation in October 2008. Kimberlina generates up to 5 megawatts of electricity at full output to help meet California’s peak summer demand.
